From Alpine Linux


Odoo is an all-in-one business software including CRM, website/e-commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse - and project management, and inventory.

Preparing Alpine

After installation and the usual repo update/upgrade add user for odoo (does not have to be named odoo)

# adduser odoo # su - odoo

Installing dependencies

# apk add python3 py-pip py3-lxml py3-greenlet py3-gevent py3-psutil py3-pillow py3-psycopg2 py3-reportlab postgresql-dev postgresql git g++ py3-pyldap

Clone Odoo git repository

$ cd ~ $ git clone https://github.com/odoo/odoo.git $ cd odoo

This material is obsolete ...

pip is externally managed! the packages should be installed using apk or using a virtual enviroment (Discuss)

Install python dependencies

# pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Postgres installation

Create, configure and start database

# rc-service setup # rc-service postgresql start # rc-update add postgresql

Create new database user (Odoo will not run under default postgres user)

# su - postgres -c "createuser -s odoo"

Running Odoo

This will serve Odoo on localhost:8069 and connect to odoo DB using Unix socket

$ ./odoo-bin
